3 Creative Ways to Add Color to Your Landscape Design, Mukwonago, Wisconsin

Lush, green lawns are attractive on their own, but for many homeowners, adding a pop of color to break up the single hue can add an alluring touch to their landscape design. If you’re unsure of where to start, worry not: The professionals from WH Major & Sons are here to help homeowners in the Mukwonago, WI, area incorporate color into their landscape.

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Choose A Dominant Color: While you certainly don’t have to stick with one color family alone, having a dominant color will create cohesion across your landscape design. For instance, you can choose fall mums in rust or yellow, and then plant flowers in similar hues throughout. Perennials are a great option because they return every year and can be divided down the road.

For instance, if your dominant color is yellow, the complimentary color would be purple. Throwing in some subtle purple petunias here and there could enhance the appearance of your dominant yellow plants.
  • Consider Landscape Pavers: By implementing a walkway or perimeter using pavers, you can break up sections of your landscape design while also incorporating some color. Landscape pavers are available in all different colors, so if you have something in mind, feel free to speak with WH Major & Sons about having them installed.

If you’re still stumped and would like to enlist the help of the pros to create a colorful and cohesive landscape design, contact WH Major & Sons for a consultation. Call (262) 363-3115 to speak with one of their knowledgeable landscapers today, or visit them online for more information.
